Players return for pre-season

We’ll have coverage of the day for you here on, as well as across our social media channels.

Africa Cup of Nations continues

Southampton’s two representatives at the Africa Cup of Nations this summer are set for action again early this week.

First up is Sofiane Boufal, who is with Morocco for their meeting with South Africa this evening, at 5pm BST.

Boufal has featured in both of Morocco’s games so far, with qualification for the knockout rounds secured after their 1-0 victory over Ivory Coast on Friday.

Moussa Djenepo is also well-placed to reach the last 16, with Mali top of their standings ahead of tomorrow’s final group match, against Angola (8pm BST). Mali have four points and will advance with a point or better.
